An unmanned airship could revolutionise police and rescue operations by offering silent surveillance from above using an array of high-resolution cameras.
The zero-emission vehicle, dubbed Eon, is designed by British aviation firm Avalon Airships to be a fully-autonomous aircraft that lands on water, allowing it to access difficult-to-reach locations.
The company claims the vehicle, about the same size of a double-decker bus, would fit a wide variety of applications ranging from commercial uses to ambulance, surveillance and policing applications.
It would come equipped with a small, detachable drone that could carry medical supplies, including a defibrillator, to anyone injured below. . .
The Eon would be powered by fully electric motors and stay afloat using helium, making it almost-silent while it cruises through the air, boasting a range of 300 miles (480km). (Read more from “Unmanned Massive Airship to Supply Unprecedented Government Surveillance From Above” HERE)
